Guest Speaker
Sr. Member Roger Ballantyne introduced Jean Davidson, granddaughter of one of the founders of the Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company, to the club. A lifelong teacher from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Davidson has taken a year sabbatical to promote her two books: Growing Up Harley-Davidson and Harley-Davidson Family Album. She spoke of the history and her own involvement with the company. Afterwards she autographed copies of her books for many interested fans. For more information go to
